Belgian Darkwave/Gothic Rock band founded in 1989 and released their first album The Breath Of Life in 1990. In February 1991, first six-concerts tour in Czechoslovakia, followed by a belgian tour and concerts in France.
One year later, the band leaves again for a nine-concerts tour in Czechoslovakia.

September 1992, release of the live in praha ‘92 album, followed by painful insanity, their first studio album, produced by Gilles Martin (minimal compact, tuxedomoon, deus…). The breath of life starts then a promotional tour in Belgium and Czechoslovakia.
1993 sees them playing in Germany, Czech Republic, Belgium, France, and The Netherlands. Their powerful musical and visual sets conquers a still growing audience.
In September, they have their second studio album taste of sorrow recorded, still produced by Gilles Martin.
A more lyrical voice, the introduction of violin in the compositions, the mix of strong and delicate guitars sound and a powerful bass line, supported by a mysterious drum set and subtle keyboards waves, show the breath of life’s new personality.
